    The NHLBI is no longer involved with HCM research - They have ended the program.

    in general, the ratio of people with HCM to the amount we know about it is pretty sad. I think the NHLBI needs to pay more attention to this.

    I wish somebody would do an honest-to-god, double-blind study on the stuff. Then we would know for sure

    Re: coenzyme Q10

    Every few weeks this comes up. Co Q10 will not decrease hypertrophy in HCM. Some people take it and claim to feel better - although there is not a clear cut reason why - others have no imporvements in symptoms.

    Re: coenzyme Q10

    I have been taking it for several months now because of a couple meds I take that deplete it.
    Over all I feel better, now I don't know if that is because of the CoQ10 or in my mind, but I believe it works so I'll continue to take it.
    Jim, hows your staph infection? Have you beat it yet?

    Re: coenzyme Q10

    There's really not been any reliable scientific studies done on CoQ10, but you'll find some people on the board here, myself included, who swear by it. I started taking it as a means to help counteract the effects of beta blockers, and i believe i have received a great benefit from it. There are those however who have tried it with no apparent benefit.
